Praia is Cape Verde's capital and busiest town. Probably not worth visiting in itself, but worth a half-day exploration if you are passing through to another destination.

The centre of town lies on a plateau overlooking the bay to the southeast. The airport lies a few kilometers to the northeast.

A few kilometers south of centre is the area of Prainha which has two pleasant beaches and a few further accomadation options.
